“ People who love to eat, are always the best people” Julia Child.
I’m starting this blog post with one of my favourite quote, and I just want to add that people who love to cook are even better !!! Today’s recipe is my own version of a classic Crostatina, which is a typical Italian pie. I have many sweet memories with Crostata, since my mom used to make it for me and my brothers when we were young. My version is just a little bit healthier but still delicious and indulgent.

The Perfect Breakfast Pie:
I have never talked to you about my first true love: coffee. I simply adore the perfume of coffee early in the morning, just as much as I love its strong and intense taste. I know it’s not the healthiest drink ever, but I am Italian and espresso is part of our culture, it simply reminds me of home and the tradition of having a quick espresso in my favourite bar before going to school or work. So, two days ago I decided to combine my love for pies with my love for coffee et voilà here’s the recipe for my perfect breakfast pie. Caffeine it’s a very strong stimulant of the Central Nervous System and it can help to fight tiredness and promote focus, which is the reason why I really suggest you to have this cake for breakfast or after lunch but don’t serve it after dinner.

Meri’s Guide to LA:
Last weekend I had the chance to visit Los Angeles, which is located just 1 hour by plane from San Francisco. Los Angeles is probably the “healthiest” city in the US. In LA you can find plenty of restaurants serving plant-based and organic dishes, there are also many juice bars and yoga studios. Last weekend the weather was really nice and I went running every day with my brothers Giulio and Giacomo. If you have the chance to visit California then you have to go to LA and enjoy its amazing vibe.
